“It was that day I became hooked on making images.”
I still remember the first time I picked up a camera, my father's Zenit EM SLR. I must have only been 10 years old and on our family holiday in Devon. I remember the smell of the camera as I removed it from its leather case and of the dry summer grass as I scrambled around trying to grab a shot of butterflies warming themselves under the early morning summer sun. It was that day I became hooked on making images.
“It's about freezing moments in people's lives.”
Initially, I enjoyed photographing landscapes and nature. However, it was photographing people that really inspired me. For me, being a photographer is so much more than taking pictures, it's about freezing moments in people's lives. Those moments to be remembered and become a part of not only your story but your families story for generations to come.
“Images that tell your story.”
What fascinates me about the people I photograph is that they all have unique stories. My goal when working with clients whether it be a wedding, christening, engagement or a family photoshoot is to tell the current chapter of their story. I encourage genuine interaction, I feel this is when real emotions happen, be it smiles, laughter, or tears. Images that really tell your story.
